More Gun Control... Democrats Use 'Stimulus' as Cover

Submitted by SadInAmerica on Sat, 02/14/2009 - 12:05am.

The liberals are at it again. In a new bill introduced the first day of the present session of Congress, and with zero coverage from the MSM, H.R. 45 (Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009) targets all gun owners in the U.S.A. While the media the world and everyone else is focused on the “phony plan” to spend tax dollars legislation is sneeking through the House and Senate for more gun control. 

This nefarious bill seeks to strip us all of our Constitutional Rights to possess and bear firearms of any distinction. It requires, within the first two years, that all new guns be registered. The bill goes retroactive after two years. Meaning that two years after the passage of the bill, ALL FIREARMS in a citizen’s possession must be registered, not just those purchased after the bill passes, and this apparently applies to antique firearms as well.

Every five years the firearm owner must go through a complete renewal process for each weapon owned. Failure to comply carries stiff penalties including confiscation of the firearms and jail time (penalties as high as ten years imprisonment in some cases). The bill also authorizes government searches without warrant, the creation of a federal bureaucracy to monitor firearm possession, etc.

The following is a summary of the bill as provided by the Congressional Research Service. If you read the whole bill, you’ll find it will effectively preclude the ownership of any firearms by law-abiding people unless directly licensed by the Attorney General :

1/6/2009--Introduced. Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 - Amends the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act to prohibit a person from possessing a firearm unless that person has been issued a firearm license under this Act or a state system certified under this Act and such license has not been invalidated or revoked. Prescribes license application, issuance, and renewal requirements.

Prohibits transferring or receiving a qualifying firearm unless the recipient presents a valid firearms license, the license is verified, and the dealer records a tracking authorization number. Prescribes firearms transfer reporting and record keeping requirements. Directs the Attorney General to establish and maintain a federal record of sale system.

Prohibits:

  1. Transferring a firearm to any person other than a licensee, unless the transfer is processed through a licensed dealer in accordance with national instant criminal background check system requirements, with exceptions;
  2. Licensed manufacturer or dealer from failing to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements of this Act;
  3. Failing to report the loss or theft of the firearm to the Attorney General within 72 hours;
  4. Failing to report to the Attorney General an address change within 60 days;
  5. Keeping a loaded firearm, or an unloaded firearm and ammunition for the firearm, knowingly or recklessly disregarding the risk that a child is capable of gaining access, if a child uses the firearm and causes death or serious bodily injury.
    Prescribes criminal penalties for violations of firearms provisions covered by this Act. Directs the Attorney General to:
  6. Establish and maintain a firearm injury information clearinghouse;
  7. Conduct continuing studies and investigations of firearm-related deaths and injuries; and
  8. Collect and maintain current production and sales figures of each licensed manufacturer. Authorizes the Attorney General to certify state firearm licensing or record of sale systems.

Like all other threats against our freedoms, we must rise and defeat this bill, slap it down hard.

In order to stop Schumer and Feinstein and there fellow gun-grabbers—we need to let the Congress know with thousands of faxes telling them to leave guns alone.

Americans like you who understand what our Founding Fathers envisioned for our nation...and who are willing to fight to defend our Constitution and for what it stands.

So please, help the Citizens Committee and me defeat those who wish to gut and trash the United States Constitution.

Help me flood the U.S. Senate and the House with the sea of FAXES big enough to drown each and every Senator and Representative willing to vote away the Second Amendment.

Why are they so afraid of guns? Crazy people will not go away if guns do, they will just kill you with a car a baseball bat a knife or gasoline. Just ask the people of England, they made a grave mistake and now cannot protect themselves. I just don't understand it, I own a gun and almost never use it and if I do it is just at a firing range for practice. I just really do not understand why they care what I am doing or anyone else. I don't go to their house and make false assumptions about them just becasue they own a knife or an axe. Funny how I can walk through the entire store of "Lowes" with an axe and not one person is afraid and I could harm someone in an instant no different than a gun. Just the other month were I live a crazy guy in a grocery store butchered a police officer with a knife in an instant, and she had a gun. Why do they want to punish us because they have some sick fear of allowing law abiding citizen the right to protect themselves. I think they are the ones that need a shrink or at the very best a good dose of common sense and realism. I just really don't get it, if these people would get their own houses in order they would not have some preverted reasoning for taking my rights away as a law abiding citizen allowed to own a gun for self defense.
